Academic Curriculum

The Senior Preparatory provides the important bridge between the Junior Preparatory and the Secondary Faculty, and educators work in close liaison in order to ensure a seamless transition from Grade Six to Grade Seven for each learner. Within a nurturing environment we continue to promote a love for learning and focus on the core skills which are necessary for success. While following the national curriculum, educators provide opportunities for learners to explore topics in depth, creating a space for innovation and independent learning.
